  • Good episode, see review for updated regular cast listing

    8.1
    Don't have level two clearance, but the inaccuracies in the cast lists in this season should be noted. Mr. Frost does not feature Janel Maloney or Joshua Malina. They also do not appear in the opening sequence. Alan Alda is seen briefly in a couple television interviews. An above average episode, with a particularily great performance from Richard Schiff (albiet small) as he reveals to CJ that he is the White House leaker. Someone with clearance please add this to the page information.Or I'll do it when I get clearance. How many of these reviews do I have to do?moreless
  • I don\'t really like The West Wing without Aaron Sorkin, but this was a classic!

    8.9
    I waited all week to discover who the leak was in the episode, and I had to wait till the very last line to discover who it was. Thankfully, it was a fun filled hour to keep me occupied.



    Allison Janney was a revelation as the sleep deprived CJ. I\'m still trying to get used to the idea of her being promoted from Press Secretary to Chief-of-Staff, and she seems to do very little work in her new position, but tonight she was a revelation.



    The mystery behind Kate Harper (who I have come to love!) continues to deepen and we can see clearly that CJ just does not trust.



    But most importantly: WE LEARN MARGARET\'S LAST NAME.



    Actually no, I\'m still reeling that I never suspected the leak came from ****, although this person liked the likeliest candidate.



    Another top episode from TV\'s slickest drama.moreless
  • The gang's all here! Practically everyone's in this episode and it's a great one.

    9.9
    In this episode we get almost everybody we've been wanting to see, (except sadly, Miss Moss) Jed, Leo, Josh, Toby, C.J., Annabeth, even Charlie is in this one, a rarity considering Dule Hill's only contracted for five episodes this season. There's a lot of greatness going on in this episode, we get the spectacularness of Leo and Annabeth, who are starting right out of the box with an extreme amount of chemistry. Annabeth, with her high-voiced perky sexiness is just the right person to match the older, wiser, "suffers no fools" McGarry, and it's fun to watch the two bounce off each other, they're quickly becoming one of my favorite couples on this show, amazing considering the lack of history they have in comparison to some of the others.



    We also get Josh trying to deal with Santos' most recent' "mistake", of course since this is Santos, and he's god's gift to the Democratic Party we know it's not really a mistake is it? Santos certainly does have a rousing press conference about the difference between intelligent design and evolution, and I thoroughly enjoyed it. It's nice to see confirmation that someone can believe in God and still think intelligent design has no place in our school systems.



    Margaret rocks the house in this episode! And we finally get to learn her last name! (Maybe it hasn't been bugging you, but it's been bugging me) She's Margaret Hooper and she kicks ass in her trial scenes. I love her constant poise and attention during the entire thing. One thing I can thank John Wells for, he certainly allowed Margaret to get some well-deserved spotlight that she never got in the Sorkin years.



    Sheen is great as usual with his portrayal of an aging President desperately trying to hold a dying administration together with both hands.



    Obviously the moment we will all remember is the final scene between Toby and C.J. I raise my glass to thee Toby.



    Great work by John Spencer, Kristin Chenoweth, Richard Schiff, Allison Janney, Martin Sheen and NiCole Robinson in this one.moreless
  • La campaña presidencial toma un nuevo brio; Margareth es interrogada sobre la fuga de información; ataques suicidas en Medio Oriente… y un final de episodio que nos dejara boquiabiertos.

    9.5
    Margareth es interrogada sobre la fuga de información acerca de una nave militar en el espacio. El consejo evaluador cree firmemente que C.J. es la persona que ha filtrado estos datos a un periodista amigo del N.Y. Times. Dentro de las acusaciones, Toby y Leo tambien estan implicados.

    La campaña sigue su curso. El debate sobre religión y ciencia se esboza parcialmente, especialmente al preguntar a los candidatos sobre el origen del Universo: ¿creación de Dios, o un hecho meramente cientifico? La respuesta de Santos es una de las mejores posiciones dentro de la rueda de preguntas.

    El asesinato del lider palestino hace temer la paz en el Medio Oriente, y aun mas cuando se establece un complot que ha asesinado a otro presidente de la region. Un singular personaje pedira hablar con C.J. sobre su teoria del complot, pues explica lo que podria venir a futuro de continuar esta racha de asesinatos.

    Los ultimos 5 minutos de episodio nos muestra una C.J. agotada, y asumiendo su rol de posible detenida por la información que salio de la Casa Blanca sobre la nave militar espacial. Testigo de ello es Toby, quien se acerca a su despacho para hablar con ella. En un momento de silencio, Toby dice a su compañera que ha tomado los servicios de un abogado, pues la persona que filtra la información a los medios es el.



    ***



    Uno de los mejores episodios hasta el momento. Definitivamente, el final es de impacto. Ninguno de nosotros esperaba que Toby fuera el gancho de información. La conducción del episodio, las tomas, acercamientos y demas ha sido dirigida eficazmente. La trama va tomando mas brillo, ante la proxima salida de Bartlet. Si se han dado cuenta, la actual campaña ha pasado a un segundo plano, pues le estan dando un nuevo interes a la trama dentro de la Casa Blanca.

    Muchas preguntas saltan ante este episodio. Y creo que todas ellas se relacionan a Toby, de por si, uno de los mejores papeles de la serie.moreless
  • a good episode that turns the storie

    9.3
    this show never stops to amuse me, today i saw the episode where i find that the director and writers have dne a great job twisting the storie and making a new plot for us to enjoy. The way that each caracter is not important to put to the test by the writers has me wondering where the storie is going next. I am looking forwar to see the next episodemoreless
